Neil Stevenson’s fascination with emerging technology and culture started at the age of eight when he began programming his first computer, a Commodore Pet. Now he carries a cellphone which has four million times as much memory and cannot shake his sense of amazement at how fast the world is changing.
Now an Executive Portfolio Director of IDEO Chicago, Neil has led projects on everything from video game interfaces to digitally-enabled education to cutting-edge food and beverage work. He has also taken his accumulated experience in psychology, technology, and cultural trends, and woven it into a futurology offering. He gives regular talks on emerging trends and future scenarios, with an emphasis on the tension between new tech-enabled experiences and our relatively unevolved brains.
Before IDEO, Neil studied the human brain and behavior at Oxford University, coming away with master’s degrees in Psychology and Social Anthropology. From there he was drawn to London, where he was the editor of Mixmag and The Face, among other magazines.
Neil’s greatest wish is to travel back in time to meet his eight-year-old former self and show him the mind-blowing capabilities of a 2015 cellphone.
